Undergraduate transfer students are those that transition from one institution of higher education to another before earning their bachelor’s degree. Transfer students are often non-traditional in terms of their age, race, veteran status, family, and employment status. They also see higher attrition rates in distance learning programs. This presentation will describe a Ph.D. (instructional systems & learning technologies) student’s efforts to teach and develop an online 1-credit course on academic success for online and distance learning transfer students that are struggling academically at a 4-year institution. This online course features both asynchronous and synchronous activities such as video-based lectures, teacher-student conferences, discussion boards, journal writing activities and more.
